Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

HALTON HILLS — I would like to praise the diligent efforts of the three fundraising groups who are doing such a splendid job in our community raising funds for our hospital, library and cultural centre and the new ice pads.  As Mayor, it is very heartening to see the efforts of so many citizens stepping up to the call for help to build these facilities.  It’s not only our tax dollars helping, but it’s with our volunteer donations.  A BIG thank you!

Acton will be welcoming the return of the GO Train Service on January 7th, 2013.  The last train service in Acton was over 20 years ago before the government (of the day) cut the train service.  In my opinion, that service should have never been cancelled in the first place.  This time around, GO will have two trains leaving Acton in the morning (6:28 am and 7:46 am).  There will also be two trains departing Union Station in the afternoon (4:45 pm and 5:45 pm).  The town played a key role on the return of GO by negotiating the parking along with the Olde Hide House.  I must give credit where credit is due and Metrolinx did a marvelous job on completing the new station and the landscaping compliments the area.

Let’s hope we have another winter like last year with very little snow.  If we do get a lot of snow, our staff will do their very best to ensure that the roads are maintained for our safety.  We have over 900km of roads and 125km of sidewalks and 25 municipal parking lots to maintain.  The sequence of priority for roads is as follows:  Regional and local roads.  Please be patient when the snow falls.

It looks like there may not be a N.H.L. season for a while.  If you need a hockey fix, you will find plenty of good hockey to watch in our local rinks.  There is a special game on January 6th, 2013.  The Toronto Maple Leafs Alumni will be facing off against the Halton Hills Firefighters at Mold-Masters at 1:30.  All proceeds will be going to C.A.S.h.h. in Halton Hills.

I am sure most of you have felt the pain and heavy hearts as the citizens of Newtown are trying to understand the recent tragedy. In the lobby of the Civic Centre, there is a book of condolences if anyone wishes to sign it.  We will be sending it to the Mayor of Newtown, CT in the New Year.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year!
